Gone is the time when stag nights meant the groom to be and his friends, hit the town for a booze fuelled night out, sometimes even the night before the wedding. Now grooms are looking at things more logically and taking a leaf out of Prince William's book and opting for a weekend away in the country, where they can let off steam during the day with outdoor pursuits and enjoy good food and wine in the evening. So for grooms who don't want to end up tied to a lamp post in their underwear on their stag night, I've picked out a collection of hotels in great locations with outdoor pursuits and activities and private dining the ideal ingredients for a great stag weekend.
Bovey Castle

Set in woodland on dramatic Darmoor this luxurious retreat provides such a vast array of activities you will be lost for choice. From shooting, fly-fishing, deer stalking, gliding, quad biking, a Land Rover experience and even paint balling your stag sojourn can be as energetic as you want it to be. Stay in the hotel or in one of the luxurious lodges on the estate that offer full hotel facilities.

Tre-Ysgawen Hall Hotel & Spa

Located on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey, the Hall has a wonderful choice of activity breaks ranging from Game Shooting, The Falconry and Hawking Experience, Cycling and Walking breaks. For the ultimate adrenalin rush try the Rib Ride Experience riding the waves, spinning in whirlpools at high speed whilst observing birds, dolphins and seals in a power boat.

Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa

You may recognise this hotel as being one of the locations for Three Weddings and a Funeral but forget that,as it offers a plethora of exciting activities. With country club facilities there's expert tuition in clay pigeon shooting and an action packed off the beaten track Range Rover experience There's golf, a well equipped gym, indoor pool and some magnificent rooms for private dining.

Rudding Park Hotel, Spa & Golf

Set in woodland and stylish gardens Rudding Park offers golf, clay pigeon shooting and other outdoor pursuits. There's a private cinema where you and your guests can enjoy the latest film after dinner in the award winning restaurant. York is a short drive away if you fancy a day at the races as is Leeds if you wish to sample the city's famous nightlife.
